Many sandwich placements can offer you the opportunity to develop your skills and gain vital experience. But not many can also offer you the opportunity to help make history. 

Join us at the STFC (Science & Technology Facilities Council) on a year long placement and you’ll work on, support or tell the world about exciting research projects that nobody else has worked on before.

ISIS is the world’s leading pulsed neutron and muon source for research in the physical and life sciences. Situated at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, the accelerator based facility provides research into physics, chemistry, materials science, geology, engineering and biology and is the most productive research centre of its type in the world. 

Where you fit in

The variety of our research is truly incredible. No other UK organisation can offer you such a diverse range of work. So in just 12 months you’ll broaden your experience in more ways than you could possibly imagine. We carry out pioneering research every day, and every day will present you with a new challenge as you play your part at the forefront of scientific discovery.

Here you won’t just observe - you’ll help to make things happen as an integral part of the internationally renowned team at a world leading research council. Friendly, pioneering and very team orientated, we’ll trust you, value you and empower you to contribute ideas, make a difference and enhance your studies, career and CV.

What you’ll need

We’re looking to place students with a passion for science who are studying towards a degree in a relevant subject.

What are you waiting for?
